An investigation of the RCB star candidate GDS J0702414-023501
2MASS J07024146-0235017 = GDS J0702414-023501 was included in the "Catalogue enriched with R CrB stars" on grounds of its near- and mid-infrared colours. The object, which corresponds to the carbon star IRAS 07001-0230 = CGCS 6197, has been found to exhibit large amplitude variability in its Bochum Galactic Disk Survey light curve. Taking into account all available data, GDS_J0702414-023501 is here proposed as a new candidate Mira variable.
